The Cedars of Lebanon

The cedar tree (cedrus libani) is the national emblem of Lebanon. It is a symbol of resilience, strength, and eternal life.

Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran (Arabic: Jubrān Khalīl Jubrān) was born on 6 January 1883 in Bcharri, Lebanon. He immigrated to America in 1895, with his mother and siblings. Gibran became one of the best-selling poets of all time. His most famous collection of poems is called “The Prophet” and is often quoted at weddings, funerals, and at special events.

Ghraybeh – Lebanese Butter Cookies

Ghraybeh are delicious and delicate Middle Eastern cookies that melt in your mouth. Whilst every effort is made to ensure traditional recipes are provided, it is acknowledged that every Lebanese village will have its own ‘special touches’. Thus the recipes passed down from one generation to another often vary slightly from village to village. We view this as part of the rich Lebanese culture.

HSC Distinguished Achievers Awards Night – Class of 2020

The 2020 graduating class were celebrated with an exceptional first HSC Distinguished Achievers Awards event.

We look forward to continuing this annual recognition of the great accomplishments of the young Lebanese Australians for many years to come.
